LOL, walked into that one didn't I?

It was funnies I was after, rather than wanting to know the inside measurement, for a one liner for my wip. No worries, got what I was after.

Geez, there are so many. They fall into two main categories, money and sex.

How much do you make, anyway?

What did you guys pay for this house?

How much do you still owe on your mortgage?

What did you spend on Christmas/your vacation/the funeral?

Were you trying to get pregnant or is this an accident?

Do you shave down there?

Do you guys do anything kinky?

Are you on your period?

People don't seem to have any idea of boundaries, eh?

Maryn, whose answers tended to be flippant rather than the cold stare and silence the question merited

Do you believe in god?

Have you ever wanted to kiss a girl?

Did you have a good childhood?

Do you love your parents?


Oddly, all but one of them occurred while I was on some form of public transport...

I had one of those moments the other day. "So I hear you wrote a novel. Can I read it?" I wanted to scream, "Lady, I don't even know you!" But I didn't. I wish I would've said, "Sure, you can buy it when it's published."

When they see our house, "What do you do for a living," or even worse, like I'm a Stepford wife, "What does your husband do?"

"How much did you pay for this?"

About my height: "How's the weather up there?" and "Do you play basketball?"

About my children: "Are you breastfeeding?" "Cesarean or vaginal?"

"Have you claimed Christ as your lord and personal savior?" and "Have you been saved?"

...and my personal fave, which was asked of me in a gay bar: "Are you a real woman?" (um, last time I looked.)

See, now they don't for me. I go dumb.
Apart from the time I was in the supermarket in the hand baskets only aisle. My daughter 3, was sat in the trolley. I had 4 pints of milk (in 1 carton) a loaf of bread and some fabric conditioner. Quite clearly 3 items. I don't use a hand basket as she tends to run off so I sit her in the trolley where she can't escape.
One wise a$$ customer, looked at me and said, "Do you know this aisle is for hand baskets only?" To which I replied, "Yeah but have you tried sitting a 3 year old in a hand basket?" No response!

SWEAR TO ZEUS--this happened just a few hours ago.

Ooookay, so, like, because of my knee issues--I'll not bore you with the drama--today was one of those rare: I'm goin' OFF the percocet, getting mi' arse INTO MYYYY Volvo--don't want husband assuming it's now HIS car--and going shopping.

Okay, so grocery shopping, but spending money is spending money. OH, and I dropped a size in jeans...oooooh weeee..

Where was I?
Oh. Personal questions.

Small base, so we all know one another....

Woman approaches me & asks how I've been with the knee & all. She sees that I'm still using a cane & that my knee is still in a 'bent/locked' position..and she asks:

'How do you go to the bathroom?'

"Why, I've discovered the penis within. But, jumping up & down in order to 'shake' makes a bloody mess!"

A guy was browsing cheese/butter (I think cinnamon rolls) and started gasping & wheezing, then just burst out laughing.

The woman was ill amused.

I have found the following to be true; if I'm ask people a personal question at a party, they'll get insulted. If I ask a personal question as a journalist, people will answer truthfully even though they know that it's going to be in print and everyone will read it.

Since you raised the subject of animals, have you ever seen the movie Switch?

The most memorable come back line was when Ellen Barkin, wearing a full length mink was accosted by a woman animal rights activist. The woman asked her if she knew how many animals had to die to make that coat. Her reply, No, but I know how many animals I had to f**k to get it!

Thinking back, I remember so many people asking me where my oldest son got his blue eyes from. (My husband and I have dark brown hair and dark brown eyes.) One time I answered to this older woman, "Oh, from the mailman!" Her eyebrows went up and she looked horrified. Thought she'd have a heart attack right there. Thankfully she walked away before she did. My husband was trying so hard not to laugh.

Some actually twitch, and you can almost hear the kindling crackle at my feet, their impressions that I must be a witch THAT strong. They get REALLY pissed.

I even had one palm my forehead & start speaking in tongues--right there in the bloody commissary!! You don't know how badly I wished I'd had an Alka Seltzer in my mouth...oh, THAT would have been rich!!!

I feel like I need a button: I believe in God, people, I just don't believe in the man doing the preaching.

Eons ago, registering my son at his new high school (we had just moved to Texas), I had brought my 2 toddling daughters with me. They remained in the double stroller, so it wasn't like they were running around, acting an ass; hence, I was a bit shocked when the counselor looked at my kids, then looked at me & said: 'You certainly have alot of them.'

I took it to mean because they were black, so flippantly answered back, "I'm doing my part to create balance. I'm a breeder."

He actually went on to become quite the advocate for my son in later years. Who knew?

LOL! The first time I was asked that I was standing in line at the commissary. Alka Seltzer *snort*, that would have been awesome.

I had a mouth full of Oreo cookies. I don't know if she thought I was planning on eating the whole package right then and there and not paying for them, or if she just thought I was committing gluttony, but for some reason, she asked if I'd been saved, and I just cocked my head to the side and tried to speak around the cookie in my mouth, "From what?"

No she was very patient. She sighed and patted my shoulder and said, "Oh dear, it's worse than I thought." Trust me, I was still extremely confused at that point. She explained how I needed to invite Jesus into my heart and be baptized and saved. She tried to get me to be 'saved' right there in line. That was almost three years ago, but I still panic when I'm in line there now, searching all the faces for hers, seeing if I need to hide or not.

What I would have given to be able to have 10-12 kids. But sickness was always too intense to the point of weakening heart. Last pregnancy saw both of us hanging on for dear life--literally. My daughter has said she wants to adopt, and have her own--wants 19 kids. I rub my hands gleefully at the thought of all those stockings at my house for Christmas!

But...I just KNOW she's going to have people wondering if she's
1)Mormon
2) Catholic
3) Competition w/ Angelina Jolie--she already has her lips....hmmmm....oh oh!
4) Lost her fricken' mind!

Dad says the first time she screams a baby from her uterus will be the last time she thinks she wants 19 kids (she's terrified of pain)!
They actually have a bet. After kid # 5, he has to buy the van of her choice.
We ain't normal here.

Ahh, don't feel too badly. I'm considering one of those plastic covers for mi' own keyboard. Hey, Lucy did it on her furniture back in the day...why not our keyboards?

And as long as I'm keeping company with a bunch of Ethels & Lucys...Lucies...oh, blow me down...this grammar madness....spellcheck and stylewriter have sucked out everything I learned in grade school....but I still remember how to get to 3rd base!!! :ROFL:

Oh, Inky, you're good!

Thinking back, I remember so many people asking me where my oldest son got his blue eyes from. (My husband and I have dark brown hair and dark brown eyes.) One time I answered to this older woman, "Oh, from the mailman!" Her eyebrows went up and she looked horrified. Thought she'd have a heart attack right there. Thankfully she walked away before she did. My husband was trying so hard not to laugh.

I get that a lot...One of my kids has red hair, and Mr. Turkey and I are blond.
Them - How did your child get soo much red hair?
Me - Not sure... I am still trying to figure out who the father is.

I had a pair of Jehovah’s whiteness’ stop by my apartment I invited them in, and left for a 15 minute drive. They were gone when I came back, but they did leave some booklets.

"What are you?"

well...I'm biracial...mixing pot actually, but mostly chocolate and vanilla...

My mom, who fielded the first one, taught me to say:

Human.

I learned to add... 'and you?'

and I've taught it to my kids, who are even more interesting than I am.

My daughter had someone ask her if she was 'mixed'.
She replied: Shaken, not sturred (accent intentional).

I 'bout pissed myself laughing.


Ah yes, she's well on her way to becoming a mini-me. Beyond proud.

Several years ago, my sister had cancer surgery. Long after that last operation, she went to a local pool, wearing her bikini. Naturally, someone noticed the scar and asked what happened. To my surprise she said, "Shark bite." The woman who asked just dropped her head and walked away. My sister must have sensed that my jaw had dropped, because she turned to me and told me she'd learned that people inquire further about cancer. A shark? They understand immediately.

I can't believe I didn't see this thread before. The most personal question I have ever been asked:

"Do you masturbate?"

This was in the middle of a college theatre class, while a group of us were working on the set and chatting. This girl brought up her own sex life and I had mentioned that I was a virgin so I had no clue about this stuff. Then she turns to me and says, "Oh really? Do you masturbate?" Point blank. To my face. In front of everyone else. My response:

:Jaw:

Jo--I've definitely been asked that. By a guy. In rehearsal.

*awkward...*

LOL! I love this one! Too bad I'm so white I practically glow in the dark so I'll never get to use it, but I'll pass it on to hubby, he always gets asked.

I knew better than to be drinking coffee when I read your response, I knew better yet I still did it. Oh, it burns, and my computer is none too happy. I think I'd better find one of those plastic keyboard covers if I'm going to continue reading this thread.
